I need some help trying to figure out what to get Shane's dad for Christmas. He's the only one on our list that we are still clueless about! He has tons of money in the bank to buy whatever he wants so it's pretty impossible! Any ideas would be great! He's into baseball, hunting, drinking, looking at porn online (lol) & he's pretty much a little housewife, he loves cleaning & cooking. Help Shocked

Could you do something that money can't buy? Something sentimental maybe?

I'm not sure if he'd like anything sentimental, he's not really a mushy, show your feelings type of guy so I think he'd like something more geared toward sports or hunting. I never thought of a hunting magazine subscription, that might be a good idea!

What's his favorite baseball team? Maybe you could get him a jersey or something from his fav player on the team or something along those lines.

I'm no good at man stuff. Women are soooo much easier to buy for. A valet organizer thingy? The hunting magazine subscription sounded like a great idea. Camping stuff? I'm not outdoorsy at all so I wouldn't even know what to suggest... Confused

Women ARE so much easier to buy for. Last year we couldn't figure out what to get him so we got him the Norton Antivirus thing for his computer, that was a last minute thing we thought of as we were walking through Best Buy though. What's a valet organizer? So far I'm thinking the hunting mag. subscription would be best, I just really don't know though!

What about making a calendar or something with Kaylee's pics on it. You can have things like that made at walmart.com. There's mugs, mouse pads, etc.

Think before you shop. When you're shopping for the man who has everything, says Vaughan, you should spend a lot of time thinking about ideas. If you choose well, the gift recipient will be impressed with the inspiration behind the idea and the fact that it is really tailored to his tastes.

A literary gem. One great gift idea is a signed first edition of a book by your recipient’s favorite author. It's a one-of-a-kind gift that a man who has everything will still treasure because there's a personal connection to a writer he loves.

The gift of wine. A case of wine is another gift idea that Vaughan really likes. Most wine shops will let you choose a mixed case, so you can mix and match your wines to the person’s tastes.

Barbecue. Most American men are big fans of barbecue, so gifts like gourmet barbecue sauces, spices ribs or great grill accessories can be very popular. A gift certificate to your area’s best barbecue joint could also be a winning present.

Get creative. The idea is to come up with something creative, a little out-of-the-ordinary, and personalized to your friend’s tastes. The perfect gift is one that a man will cherish, but would never go out and buy for himself because it’s a little too indulgent or extravagant.
